Like a pint-sized Johnny Weir, minus the ice skates, French belly dancer Illan Rivière headlines Danse du Ventre, a collaboration between Portland-based belly dance journal From the Hip and Narcissa Productions. Rivière, 20, bends and twists his tiny body in a fusion-tribal style that’s modern but referential to belly dancing’s roots. At times graceful in lyrical pieces, he can also be alarmingly powerful—especially with pop-and-lock moves to more electronic tracks. And as far as stomach manipulation goes, he can jiggle his belly with the best of them.
